Prime LMS 4.2 Port usage

Hi guys,

I am looking at a task of defining the port usage of a Prime LMS 4.2 installation, and I found the URL here:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/net_mgmt/ciscoworks_lan_management_solution/4.2/install/guide/prereq.html#wp1075786

The page contains alot of ports, but I focus on the ports that needs to traverse the network – i.e. client to servers ports.

I found these, among others:

TCP

42342

OSAGENT

Common Services

Client to Server

LMS inbound

TCP

42352

ESS HTTP
(Alternate port is 44352/tcp)

Common Services

Client to Server

LMS inbound

TCP

44352

ESS HTTP
(Alternate port)

Common Services

Client to Server

LMS inbound

TCP

43242

ANIServer

Network Topology, Layer 2 Services and User Tracking

Client to Server

LMS inbound

So, besides they ”forgot” to list the ports for NTP (udp/123) and DNS (tcp&udp/53) on the list (! – a doc-bug ?), I am deeply puzzled around the usage of these ports.

What exactly are the ports used for, and in what conditions ?

Also I need to verify the need for internet connections, as I understand, only tcp/443 & tcp/80 towards *.cisco.com is needed, correct ?

Are there any other references to port usage, that includes everything ?

          

Anyone knows ??

       Regards

Martin

Hi,

Check out

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/net_mgmt/ciscoworks_lan_management_solution/4.2/install/guide/prereq.html#wp1075786

And I also found that TCP 58357 may also be required between the LMS server and Web Client; however the documentation has not been updated to reflect this yet.

Hope this helps

ngoldwat - thx for your reply.

I think the URL you provided is the exact same as I have written in my post.

My concern arises from that exact list.

So do you know, exactly what the ports are used fore and under which conditions ?

Also the new port you discovered tcp/58357 - was is it used for ?

Think i forgot to tell but  I use the OVA install - dunno if it makes any difference.

The connection to the ANIServer is when you launch the topology view.

The java applet will connect back to the server on that port.

There is a UTLite program that can send "user" details to the usertracking database. Something that should run on your client pc's when they login on your network.

I also found out that LMS will connect out on some "funny" TCP port to switches to get energywise data.

I don't recall what port are used.

So if you lock down all the ports except the ones provided by cisco, expect some suprises.

Cheers,

Michel

Hi Ngoldwat,

I have a customer who is also setting up a LMS behind a firewall and I was wondering if there may be a complete/updated list of the firewall ports for the lms for the different services? Example would be active directory authentication/technology center scans such as energwise indicated by Michel/etc...?

Thanks.
